The Sabian Artisan Elite Hats have been expertly modeled with traditional cymbal-making methods to create a 14″ hat that provides a deep and dirtier sound. Separating itself from the Artisan family, the 14″ hats feature multi-peen, high-density hammering and unique lathing to deliver a lower-pitched sound with an extremely solid foot. However, the Elite hats follow the Artisan cup and weights process to remain a versatile option for drummers who enjoy more mainstream sounds. To complete the darker performance, the Sabian Elite hats have an imperfect surface for those looking for something different.
Tonally, Elite can be considered the “Black Sheep” of the Artisan family. The Artisan Elite Hats offer drummers a unique performance consisting of a lower-pitched, drier sound that equates to an overall deeper and darker tone.
Sabian Artisan cymbals have always been masterpieces, pushing forward the art of cymbal making while delivering old-world sound. Artisan Elite are the latest cymbals from Sabian to deliver on the Artisan promise.
